IQPC’s eDiscovery event of 2009 focused on rapid early case assessment and review strategies, as well as realigning relationships between outside counsel, in-house counsel, legal, and IT. As organizations adopt e-discovery strategies for 2010, they should consider many of the issues covered at this year’s sessions that provided a perspective for the future.

The IQPC event concluded a pivotal year in legal technology that “was all about moving left on the Electronic Discovery Reference Model and getting information management practices in order,” said attendee Stephen Ludlow, senior program manager for e-discovery at Waterloo, Ontario-based Open Text.
